    It rides like a big car because it is big and heavy.

    No question it's heavy. But that's not the only reason it rides the way it does. Instead feeling buoyant over bumps, it actually has effective damping. To me, that's important no matter how much a car weighs.

    Will people ever stop comparing the Dart to the Neon and Caliber. Those cars were absolute garbage, especially the Neon. All the Dart shares with them is being a compact Dodge.

    motorstreet, no. The Dart represents such a huge improvement over those turds that a comparison is the first thing that comes to mind. A 3-speed automatic? That's almost as bad as Toyota's use of a 4-speed automatic in the Corolla.

    And actually, Toyota was still using a 3-speed auto in base versions of the Corolla (VE/CE, depending on the model year) around the time the 2nd-gen Neon came out.
